I enjoyed making my previous life-sized sculpture so much, that I want to continue exploring this medium. I have started creating some smaller solid sculptures of female forms using clay, Plaster of Paris, Pollyfilla, and wood glue.
It’s super fun and I was really chuffed that I was able to create an accurate form without a base - as with my previous large-scale sculpture in which I used real bodies to cast from.
These little ladies are created with my imagination guiding my fingers! I love the way I am able to manipulate the shape of the body and feeling it with my hands like they are mini humans almost feels surreal! I can’t believe I’ve never explored this medium before, I’m absolutely loving it!
I feel this is an opportunity for me to further explore and represent the female form through relatable means and I can’t wait to see how it manifests!
